  • Hello,

    Digital ocean is self hosted platform, that means you will be responsible of servers and everything.
    This is good for you if you are familiar with these stuff and want to run your own environment.
    Switching from Godaddy straight to here might not be a good move if you just hosting a blog or simple wordpress site, otherwise please You may need to consider managed hosting companies if this the case.
    Try Wpengine.com , siteground.com , Synthesis.com those my recommendations because I have you used them in the pas or still using them.

    I hope this helpful...

  • P.S I am now switching to Digital Ocean because I have a lord of projects that only them can provide a simple, fast and accurate cloud environment for anyone and wordpress users including , you don't need to be a genius or a developer.

  • Thank you for your reply, Flaza

    I guess, I will give a test drive for one month, as I can able to set up Linux server, But I haven't run any web hosting, However one question again, I have destroy my droplet and created again, Will they charge me for each destroy and creation :(

  • You get charge per hour for every droplet you create, which depends on which droplet you create the $5 droplet 1 hour = $0.007 and the $10 1 hour = $0.015 So if you created a $10 droplet and used/tested it for 3 hours you would be charge $0.045. If you destroy a droplet they stop charging you for it.

    Hope that helps

  • Thank you Aguilar, you information is very useful for me.

  • Thats right but don't really get freaky with hourly pricing , and I think each is given a limited number of droplets to create according to your billing plan....

  • Thank you Flaza for the Alert !
